and my Himalayan Golden Mahseer fishing trip. First off I must thank Indian Angler for all the helpful info regarding tackle and tactics, it has really been a gold mine of information!

In short, my trip was fantastic. Although I have been to India before, this was my first time in Delhi and in the north, and my first time fishing there. Fabulous food, very friendly locals and stunning scenery; the fishing was pretty good as well!
I caught a number of mahseer, mostly ranging in the 6 - 10lbs class, but I was lucky and the last fish I caught was a beast!
Here are some photos:

My first mahseer, beautiful creature:

Tough fight:


Oh meri jaan!


When the time came, I really didn't want to leave India. I am planning my next trip already!
Cheers,
Adam

Wow!

The last one really is a beast. What lure did you use?

Thanks! The last fish was taken on a J13 Rapala jointed floating minnow. Although over the course of my trip, the lure that consistently produced the most bites was the Acme Little Cleo spoon, in gold.
Both of these I bought after reading advice here on IA.

Aloo2007:
Thanks! And she was released safe and sound, so hopefully the next time I am there we can meet again.

Cheers,
Adam

Adam,
Beautiful fish and a great result on the Ganges. You wouldn't happen to have been at a quite famous spot (from Casting for Gold) where a tributary comes in would you, just wondered as the hills looked vaguely familiar. Have fished the Ganges myself unsuccessfully and saw dynamiting going on, so would be nice to think that there were still some mahseer in that area.

Yes, very observant of you. The point is Byas Ghat, where the Nayar flows into the Ganges. You can just about see the confluence in the upper right part of the sunrise photo. Whilst fishing there I met Surendra, the local guide who ghillied for the anglers in the documentary you mention.
During my visit thankfully we saw no evidence of dynamiting, but rafting on the way in we spotted poachers' nets and gear at two sites.

Apoo, Bobby, rod n reels & Mahseerken:
Thank you all for your kind words! It was a real once in a lifetime experience.
